Celebrating the Green Parks of London

London may have a reputation as a massive metropolis, but it is also populated with some of the most beautiful city parks in the country.

The largest of the royal parks in the capital city, Hyde Park is situated close to Kensington Gardens, separated by the Serpentine Lake. Situated close to the main shopping districts of London, it makes for a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Famed for its beautiful flower displays and well-maintained lawns, Kensington Garden is also home to Kensington Palace. The park provides an ideal place for people to walk and enjoy the beauty of nature on their weekends.

London’s oldest park, St. James Park is found in the heart of London, close to Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and the Mall. As it is so close to London’s most popular tourist attractions, it is often frequented by tourists and visitors and beloved for its beauty.

Found close to Buckingham Palace, Green Park is also found in the centre of London, close to St. James Park and bordered by Constitution Hill. The park is renowned for its old trees and expansive grass areas.

Green Park

One of London’s most famous Royal Parks, due to the fact that Henry VIII use to go hunting here while staying at Greenwich Palace. It is also popular with visitors as it is the place where Sir Walter Raleigh draped his coat over a puddle, so that Queen Elizabeth I would not muddy her feet.
